During the changes we are experiencing due to COVID-19, we have created a virtual for transfer students. Please visit https://www.govst.edu/coronavirus/ for more information.

Congratulations on choosing Governors State University as the destination to complete your Bachelors Degree! Transfer Orientation will be your first step to familiarizing yourself to campus and connecting to the university community.  

Please note: Orientation is mandatory for all transfer students.  To access  the orientation website, go to the myGSU portal and click the "ORIENTATION" button.  You should still plan to meet with your advisor!
